Life isn’t just unfair to us brunettes in the current moment of history-it was unfair to our Pleistocene sisters.

A report on a new study from an English newspaper indicates that, in addition to gentlemen, cavemen have always preferred blondes.

And wouldn’t you just know it, blondness developed because of food shortages in Europe-skinny and blonde, the perfect cave gal. Do read the Times of London article-it’s fascinating.

And it is as a completely non-bitter brunette that I non-gloatingly quote the conclusion:

 “Film star blondes such as Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Sharon Stone and Scarlett Johansson are held up as ideals of feminine allure. However, the future of the blonde is uncertain.

“A study by the World Health Organisation found that natural blonds are likely to be extinct within 200 years because there are too few people carrying the blond gene. According to the WHO study, the last natural blond is likely to be born in Finland during 2202.”

Yeah, ladies, have more fun-while you can!
